The ***** is Back, An Article in Atlantic Monthly
A patient in menopause sent me this article when she was in the throws of internet reading and research. She said "I am so tired of all this information. Finally an article that tells my story!" The article was published in The Atlantic and is written by Sandra Tsing Loh. I found it to be intelligent, funny and enlightening to me on one woman's perspective (including my patient's) on going through menopause.
